Training & Background

I am a dual-specialist Consultant having completed training in both Rheumatology and General Medicine. Following completion of my training and education at both Cambridge and The Royal College of Physicians in London, I now work as a Consultant Rheumatologist and Physician at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital, where I am also the Director of Research and Development.

As part of my role I act as Lead Clinician for the award winning early arthritis service and drive research in biologic therapies and inflammatory arthritis associated lung diseases. Since qualifying I have been involved in more than 50 clinical trials, have authored over 90 abstracts and presented at numerous international conferences. I am also a member of various rheumatology research panels and advisory boards worldwide.

In addition to my clinical work and research I am Department Lead for GP education, regularly providing lectures for the CCG and medicine optimisation teams, as well as arranging bi-annual sessions for primary care physicians. I act as mentor for professionals’ postgraduate training including extended scope physiotherapists, general practitioners and specialist nurses.

I live in Bedford with my wife and two daughters and during my spare time I like to volunteer with local charities, providing career guidance to local youth groups and health education to the public. I love travelling, learning about different cultures and am also a keen quizzer – indeed I have won several medical quiz shows over the years.
